The Best Water Parks near Barcelona!


Cool Down this summer and go to the best Water Parks near Barcelona!

Summer is here and it can get pretty hot, especially here in Barcelona! If you are looking to spend a nice day with some friends or family, going to water parks near Barcelona can be a great option to chill out a bit and have fun at the same time.

We’ve got you covered at SuiteLife with our great selection of the best water parks near Barcelona! Check it out:


Costa Caribe Aquatic Park

The Costa Caribe Aquatic Park is part of the Port Aventura Park, only one hour drive from Barcelona. It is in the heart of Costa Dorada and is more than 50,000 square meter! You will be able to enjoy a great atmosphere of the Carribean, huge swimming pools, rapids, waves, river waters, palm trees and there’s even a special area for children. And guess what? There is also the highest free fall slide in Europe, for those of you who dare! The only bad thing about this park is that it is so famous that it can get really crowded, so don’t hesitate and take your tickets online to avoid queuing too much when arriving. You can also buy an “express pass” to beat the queue at the different attractions, which is going to save you a lot of time!

You can find all the information you need (prices, opening times, …) and book your tickets on their website:


Water world (Lloret del mar)

Water World is on the Costa Brava, so you can enjoy a nice location if you’re there on holidays. It is about a one hour drive from Barcelona.

It has more than 20 different rides that are divided in three categories: children, family and bold so there should be something for everybody! You will enjoy some giant rides, wave pools, Jacuzzis, rapid rivers, kamikaze, etc… The only thing is that you need to arrive very early in order to really enjoy your day and avoid the crowd at the entrance gate, but apart from that, this park is definitely one of the best water parks near Barcelona!

You can find all the information you need (prices, opening times, …) and book your tickets on their website:


Aquopolis (Vila Seca)

Aquopolis is in Vila Seca, an hour and a half south of Barcelona by car. Just like Water World and Costa Caribe, Aquo Polis offers rides for the entire family. But, there is one big difference between those parks ! Actually, one of the greatest things about Aquopolis is that there are exhibitions with dolphins and sea lions! You can even interact with them, and who in the world doesn’t want to swim with dolphins? Moreover, the dolphin show is included in the price so you won’t have to pay extra to see them. However, you need to book to confirm the activities with the animals.

Don’t forget to buy your tickets online as they are discounted and you will avoid the queue at the entry!

You can find all the information you need (prices, opening times, …) and book your tickets on their website:


Marineland (Palafolls)

Marineland is located in Palafolls, which is about an hour drive from Barcelona. This park would have to be one of my favourites as it is not only a water park but also a marine zoo! You will be able to see dolphins, penguins, sea lions, seals and exotic birds. Even though I don’t quite understand what exotic birds have to do with marine life, it’s still great to be able to see them. And obviously, since it is a water park, you will enjoy lots of rides made for the entire family. It’s definitely a must go if you have children (and even if you don’t!). It is about one hour from Barcelona by car.

Moreover, if you buy your tickets online, you’ll have a special discount so don’t wait any longer!

Illa Fantasia (Vilassar de dalt)

A fellow SuiteLifer went there last weekend, and she really had a blast! It is only a 20min drive from Barcelona by car, but you can also take a bus to get there from the city. Even though it was on a Sunday, it was NOT crowded! And that is rare enough in Barcelona to be noted, trust me, especially in August. Like every other parks, you can enjoy many different water attractions, but in this one, you don’t have to queue for ages while burning in the sun!
Every Wednesday during July and August, you can also enjoy an Aquasound Pool Party from 3pm to 6pm in a huuuuuge swimming pool! We haven’t been there yet, but it sounds like an amazing experience. There is also this special promotion where you can buy a day ticket and have a night ticket for free! “Pay once, come twice”.

Water Activities in Barcelona

Water Activities in Barcelona: A fun way to spend your day

Water activities in Barcelona is a fun way to spend your day. There are many things to do around Barcelona, but often times during the hotter months, you just want to take a break and cool down. A good way to do this is to head out to the beach. Sometimes, however, going to the beach can get boring and you want to do more fun thing in the ocean. The good thing is Barcelona has a vast variety of different activities you can do in the water at all different price ranges. Here you will find some of the best water activities in Barcelona that you do not have to take training classes for. If beaches are more your thing then check out our Barcelona Beach Bible.

Banana Boat

There are many companies that you can ride a banana boat with in Barcelona. This is one of the many popular water activities in Barcelona and can be enjoyed by all ages. There are different durations of time that you can enjoy the boat. For 15 minutes you can ride on the banana boat for €20 a person. If you want to do this option you must have a minimum of 5 people going on the boat and a maximum of 10 people. There is an option to go on the boat for a longer period of time. You can go on a banana boat for 3 hours for € 120 per person. For this experience you only need a minimum of 2 people and there is a maximum of 9 people.

Jet ski

Jet ski rentals are probably one of the most popular water activities in Barcelona. Jet ski rentals also do not tend to be the least expensive options of fun water activities. There are many different places that you can rent jet skis but for the most part the prices tend to stay in the same price range. For 30 minutes on a jet ski you will typically be paying 100 €, 1 hour is 180 €, 5 hours is 750 €, and 10 hours is 1400 €. There are also different excursions that you can take on a jet ski around the Mediterranean in the Barcelona area. There are excursions to Costa Brava or Garraf this is approximately a 4 hour excursion and costs 500 € per person. This excursion is only for 1 or 2 people. The other excursion offered is a long distance excursion, there are several locations in which you can travel up and down the Spanish coast line. The cost of the long distance excursion is 1000 € a day per person. Although jet skis can be pricey, they are well worth the money to be able to get out onto the open water and experience the Mediterranean sea.

To book one of the jet ski experiences you can call +34 659 935 966


Parasailing is one of the more relaxing water activities in Barcelona, except of course if you are afraid of heights. Parasailing gives you a wonderful view of the whole city and this is a view you would not be able to see anywhere else. For a single person parasailing is 90 €, double is 160 €, 3 people 210 €, 4 people 240 €, and 5 people 300 €. Although this can be a little pricey, parasailing gives you the most beautiful view of Barcelona and allows you to enjoy it even more from 150m above the ocean.

To book parasailing you can call +34 616 031 289

360 Jet Boat

The 360 jet boat is probably my favorite choice of water activities in Barcelona. This boat is called Monster Barcelona and it takes you flying through the ocean with a 450 hp boat. This boat will do 360 degree turn stops at random times and will also nose dive into the water. This boat is more for the adrenaline junkie even though it doesn’t hurt to be on this boat. You do get soaked so therefore must wear a bathing suit while you are on the boat, not that you wouldn’t wear a bathing suit on any boat. For a 15 minute ride the cost is 35€ per person, but totally worth it.

To book the Monster Barcelona 360 jet boat call  +34 616 031 289

Flyfish Barcelona

Flyfish as a water activity is an awesome tubing experience. This tube will take you flying through the air while you get pulled by a boat. It gets its name because you will be flying like a fish through the air. This experience lasts 15 minutes and costs 30€ per person. This is a fun experience that is enjoyable for most ages.

To book reservations for Flyfish Barcelona call +34 616 031 289


Flyboarding is definitely more for an adrenaline junkie looking for water activities in Barcelona to do on vacation or maybe just for fun on the weekend. This is fairly a new thing popping up around the world. These are boots that you put on with jets on the bottom of them. These boots allow you to swim quickly through the water and fly in and out of the water. This is definitely one of the more expensive activities to do in Barcelona but also one of the most memorable. Flyboarding costs 85€ per person for 15 minutes in the water. The price is a lot for 15 minutes but totally worth it if you’re an adrenaline junkie!

To book your flyboarding experience call +34 616 031 289

Whether you are looking for some short time fun in the water or a long excursion on a jet ski Barcelona has so much to offer in the line of water activities! What are your favorite activities that you have found in Barcelona?



Swimming pools in Barcelona

The Best Swimming Pools in Barcelona

Swimming pools in Barcelona

Brace yourselves… Summer is coming! That means a lot of sun, parties and beach sessions! Hold on… let’s rewind.

Beaches are a must during summertime and Barcelona has some really nice ones. But summer in Barcelona means lots and lots of tourists and sometimes we just don’t want to deal with loud and crammed spaces when all we want is to just lay back and relax while making tan.

So today I am giving you, my SuiteLife gang, an alternative. Public swimming pools in Barcelona!


Parc de la Creueta del Coll

Not your everyday boring community pool.

Swimming pools in Barcelona












Parc de la Creueta del Coll is not just one of the regular swimming pools in Barcelona. The whole area was initially decided to be used to build flats, however later on it was decided that it would be better to turn it into a recreational space for the neighbors in Gracia. The park consists of ping-pong tables, picnic and children’s play areas and most importantly a big bathing pool. What makes this swimming pool different than others is it’s decor and the nature surrounding it, which makes you feel as if you are on an exotic holiday somewhere in the Caribbean. The water in the pools is relatively shallow which makes it perfect young and old alike to enjoy a refreshing day at Parc de la Creueta del Coll. Admission fees are from 3€ to 6€. Children under 3 years old are let in for free. I know, right?!


Piscines Bernat Picornell

This one is for the sport-oriented swimmers.

Swimming pools in Barcelona
















Piscines Bernat Picornell located on Montjuic hill are three swimming pools created almost solely for competitions and sport’s events. The sport center opened doors in 1970 but it was almost entirely renovated in 1992 for the Olympic games in Barcelona. The Bernat Picornell pools are at the top in the list of swimming pools in Barcelona. The swimming center has three swimming pools in total – one heated indoor pool, one competition pool and one diving pool which is temporarily closed. During summertime, the outdoor competition pool is open for the public, however, occasionally there are movies played as part of the Grec festival by the pool. So you’ll need to call the center beforehand and establish which days the pool will be open. After all, you don’t want to go all the way up to Montjuic and be disappointed at the end, unless you enjoy walking uphill just for the sake of it. Yeah.. me neither.


Llac de Can Dragó

‘The lake’

Swimming pools in Barcelona















Llac de Can Dragó is of the best swimming pools in Barcelona. People refer to it as ‘the lake’ because of its enormous surface area - 2.960 m². It is the biggest swimming pool in Barcelona and is part of a sports complex that stretches over 15, 000 m². The water is shallow and the pool’s maximum depth is 1.30m which is perfect you have children or if you just don’t know how  swim :( . The pool has a grassy area surrounding it so pack those sandwiches in the picnic basket and have a great day at Llac de Can Dragó. Oh.. you forgot to pack lunch? No worries, there is a cafe with tables and chair waiting to cater to you.


That concludes my blog for this week. I hope you found it helpful if you were wondering where to have a relaxing day to sunbathe away from the noisy beach. If you liked this post feel free to share it with your friends or leave as a sweet comment below. Or both!
